Are you ready for the solar system smackdown? The satellite blitz? The long-awaited movie Earth Vs. Moon is finally cranking up, and Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick explain how they pit the Moon's civilians against Earth's.

First Showing snagged an interview with these two writers, and after explaining that they want Will Smith to star in this war epic, they continued on with a few more details about their movie, which follows a civil war between a lunar colony and the folks back home:

"It's about two societies at war, but it's also about a family, not at war, but a fractured family. Half of them have gone to the moon and the other half are still on Earth and so they are on opposite sides of this conflict and we wanted to make sure that as big of movie as it's going to be, it works on a small level. It works on a personal level, the way we like to think about Zombieland working. It's just this huge post-apocalyptic landscape, but we really want it to work on an interpersonal level for just a few people who are the stars."
